We are an association of Canadian students, who are concerned and passionate about the lack of pediatric drug formulations in Canada. We are excited about bringing together our various experiences and background to raise awareness about the issue and to make long-lasting change.
Our Former Members
We want to improve children’s medical treatments and improve the quality of life of Canadian families for today and for the future. Many life-saving medicines are not made in child-friendly formulations. We believe that the lack of these medications adapted to children must be changed, especially since it is not an issue in other developed countries.

We urge Canadian government to facilitate the development of medication for children. To achieve this goal, we:
Raise awareness: we launched a petition in July 2019 to ask the government to change policies which currently disincentivizes pharmaceutical companies from developing pediatric formulations. Further, we regularly update and educate our 1000+ followers on our social media platforms.
Engage stakeholders: We are engaging with mothers, nurses, doctors and pharmacist to understand the scope of the issue from a variety of perspectives.
Lobbying: With our growing support base, we will engage with Members of Parliament across Canada to request that they bring our petition to the House of Commons.
As a result of better and easier access to pediatric formulations, we hope that this will promote the health and well-being of Canadian children and their families.
